Living Histories: Angel Orola

Angel Orola is Guyanese and British. She lives in Sheffield with her Mum and Sister. She currently studies Economics and Politics in Leicester and is an active member of the female collective ‘Society of Queens’. When Angel was a child, she went back to Guyana, where her Mother is from. This gave her an insight into the traditional lifestyle that her ancestors also experienced. Angel has ambitions of getting educated and setting up her own initiatives and being an active citizen, contributing to making change in her community and in the World.

Angela’s story is part of the ‘Displaced Migration: Living Histories project’ – a project by Element Society, in partnership with Storying Sheffield at University of Sheffield, and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Element Society is a youth charity based in Sheffield delivering development, social action and enterprise programmes to young people and vulnerable adults.
